Sox Nixed Trade Of Lester & Lackey To Empire

Whether you like the flurry of deals at the trade deadline or not, you've gotta love this piece of news! Reports indicate the The Evil Empire tried to trade for both Jon Lester and John Lackey, but the Red Sox refused to deal them to their bitterest rival. As we now know, Lester was instead dealt—along with Jonny Gomes—to Oakland for Yoenis Cespedes and Lackey was dealt to the Cardinals for Allen Craig and Joe Kelly. No word on who The Pinstriped Posers would have sent back to Boston in a deal—but, who cares? Kudos to the NOG for only agreeing to send Stephen Drew to The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street.
